Counter Weight has plenty of parking and two floors to check out (a tap room on each). Downstairs was a regular tap room with about 8-10 beers. Plenty of seating and nice for hanging out. Like most small breweries, they do not sell food but...More

Beer is good. ...Not as good as New England Brewery, but still good. ...I'd like if they do growlers, but, I guess, it is OK.

Awesome new craft brewery in an old fitness center complex complete with a wild fermentation room and 2 serving areas. Incredibly tasty IPA's...particularly Inundation and Spiral Architect.

Location is not the prettiest. No outdoor seating, no windows with views, but their IPAs are very good. Fairly crowded on a Saturday afternoon- dog and kid friendly. Do not sell growlers but do have limited cans to go.

Such a great first trip to Counterweight this past weekend. They were so welcoming and the beer was delicious. Cannot wait to go back during football season and stock up!
